I've decided to join Me Made May '13, but only document on ThemeFridays. Technically, I jumped the gun because this photo was taken on Thursday. However, Friday will be a super-busy day and the first theme is water. Behold, the Pacific Ocean (and Vogue 1310*).
[I still sew the occasional wacky Issey Miyake-type pattern puzzles, but I approach them as a mental exercise.]
I saw the cutest little barnacles growing on a wee bit of kelp. For reference, they are about 2-3 millimeters wide.
* Vogue 1310:
Evening wear on the beach? No, it's an evening wear pattern reinterpreted for casual day wear.
The top could have been a real fabric hog (2.25 yds of 60" wide fabric) because it should be double- layered and cut on the bias. But, I pieced some scraps of linen to cut out the front, lined the front only with a small piece of cotton voile, and used another scrap of matching jersey for the back.
